I think we should take a group poll to try one last time to convince Ricardo to change the paint scheme on this engine before he installs it.

It is currently painted silver & black which are Oakland Raiders colors (boo, hiss)

I think he should paint it blue to match the outside of his truck with orange highlights (Bronco colors). He professes to be a huge Broncos fan, well here is his chance to prove it

x2 paint is cheap Ricardo, and blue looks good on an engine block

Yes but the outside of the truck is already blue so were just color coordinating.

Ah yes, the "Gay" 2F build. I'll take that as a yes vote for changing it to something more colorful.

The firewall does not let me see the image. Perhaps the BoomBoom (or another member) can move the photo to our site, then I can see. EDIT - never mind; I've seen Marshall's color scheme and that is not for me.

The FJ40 is HutHut's daily driver and that is the color he choose. I like the way it looks, but am not certain it will remain Sail Blue forever.
